Several months ago I started a “family project.” It was project where I conducted to see if my siblings could learn Internet marketing and make some money off of the Internet. I’m sure it’s pretty clear by now that the family project was a total failure. It’s just not as easy as I had hoped. You really can’t push them around as much as you would a friend or someone you hardly know.
You can try and motivate them, but all they see is “if you’re doing it, why should I?” If it was a friend or someone I hardly know, the mentality would be “if you’re doing it, I’d better be doing it too!”
Unfortunately, I was met with a bunch of lazy kids. This project has been stamped with a huge “F.”
Though my sister Hang has learned more SEO, I am teaching her some web designing as well. She still hanging on by a thread, so I’ll still continue to tutor her.
My father-in-law, seems to have lost focus on the projects he was suppose to do. Must have lost faith in himself. I’ll just have to motivate him a different way. I guess I can see it from their point of view. They’ve never done Internet marketing before and really don’t know the true power it harnesses. They don’t see that they could be making thousands of dollars nearly overnight.
I guess that’s why I’ll need to run a few individual projects of my own to inspire them.
Sorry, the family project has failed. Better luck with another one, right?
